QVCONNECT64.exe doesn't run because it isn't 'signed'

I have QV desktop deployed to a PC with restricted security (i.e. no Admin rights) and APPLOCKER has been deployed to prevent execution of unauthorised programs.  

So far so secure.

However, here's the 'kicker'...

Since, our policy prevents execution of unauthorised programs from %temp% (a common vector for virus attacks) when QV.exe runs a script and extracts the ODBC EXE connector into %temp% 

I get:

Failed to start connector: QvConnect64.EXE
System error: This program is blocked by group policy. For more information, contact your system administrator.

Any workarounds/solutions would be gratefully received.


HEY QLIK ! - why do you run the ODBC connector this way? 

You already have copies of QVCONNECTnn.EXE in the QV Program folders AND they are digitally signed so I can run them from anywhere.
